Biography

Stuart Johnson (b. 1936 in Staffordshire, Great Britan) served in the band of the Kings Dragoons Guards and then trained as a teacher. He has a wide experience in music education, as a teacher, lecturer and Music Advisor.

Stuart Johnson is one of Britain's leading educational writers for bands. He has achieved great success with his `Band Book' series for brass, but he also has the distinction of writing more advanced works - such as 'Sinfonietta' for Wind Band - which enjoy equal acclaim. All his pieces are carefully tried at school level before publication and he is widely regarded as an authority in his field.

In recent years he has produced a substantial amount of new music for Wind Band, mostly to commission, including his hugely successful 'Circus Suite', and a series of 'Bandstand' pieces (Bandstand Boogie, Beguine, Ragtime etc.). He has always been careful to strike a balance between interesting content but practical scoring.

His Wind Band output is published exclusively by G & M Brand Publications, England.
